Further calling actors who are interested to meet the critically acclaimed director, he wrote that the director is available in PVR Juhu and watches night shows there, everyday.

“Aisa sunne me aa raha hai ki @mehtahansal ne #Article15 4-5 baar dekhi hai.. jo bhi actors unse milna chahte hain woh PVRJuhu ko night show mein unse mil sakte hain .. roz”

Hansal Mehta responded to the filmmakers’ statement by sharing a screenshot of his ticket along with a caption that read, ” Yahaan milein!”( meet here)

” Yahaan ticket sasti hai. Samosa aur pop corn badhiya hain. Aur Paani ke saath ye sab aapko ₹70 mein milega…”

Taapsee Pannu also reacted to the post saying, “I’ve been told he is out there making sure the dedication card is still there.”
